CPU Temperature

    Does 48 Degrees sound ok for a machine of my spec (see below)?

    I only have a CPU fan, a PSU fan and a fan on the graphics card.

    Oh and it reaches 48 degrees after about 2 hours and has never gone above 50.

    Hi !
    As far as I know, if the temps never go over 50°C (or even 60°C), everything is allright !
    In your case, you don't have to worry !

    Average normal temperature on a Duron 800 is 40 C idle 45 C load.

    with added ambient temp.. 48 sounds right too me.

    But my Pentium3 1Ghz never goes above 32 full load!, just a comparison.

    It can be cooled better with a good thermal compound like Arctic Silver 3. I have had better cooling with that than the "pad" that comes on many heat sinks. There are some great heatsink / fan combos out there which will also lower the temp. Although your temp seems OK, it wouldn't hurt to try to cool it down a bit.

    Good article here using arctic silver 2 on a Duron 800.

    Sounds a little too much for a Duron as others said , My Athlon gets 45 in 20 minutes and reaches 47 so far . You should be worried if your cpu [ ! ! ! ] gets over 52-54 degrees

    Yes, I do. :p I really have good results with it. Make sure when you get it, only apply a very small amount. It contains a high concentration of silver. If it makes contact with anything other than the processor itself, it could cause a problem. Also, remove whatever is already on the heatsink. Other compound or pad or whatever is there.

    I set the ACPI CPU Temp ShutDown in the Bios to 60 Degrees so if it reaches 60 my PC will switch off on its own :)

    Xsivforce, I will try some of that Arctic Silver thermal compound and post back with the results :D

    Oh does that Arctic compound stuff work on humans? Sure would help in the summer heat :p

    Arctic Silver should pay me a little on the side as much as I mention them. Thermaltake as well with the Volcano 7. ;) Maybe I should copy all of my posts about both of them and send them to the respective companies. :p

    Dont get me started on Arctic Silver the stuff is one of the best things ever made, and gets better with every new mix, Arctic Silver 3 is wonderful, I am going to get some more when I get my ThermalTake Volcano 7+, as soon as Dabs.com gets some of them in. I would order now, but it is 2-3 weeks, and I will be gone in 2 weeks. Will wait til it is 2-3 days.

    Also the Arctic Silver took my CPU temp down by 7 C, they guarrantee about 2-4, but I got 7, this I think is 'cause I had really bad contact between pad and CPU

    you cant really do much with Arctic Silver but use on heatsinks, what can xsiv be doing.
